A couple of weeks ago, I posted about the cancellation of our annual open studio event in conjunction with the Garrett County Artist Studio Tour. While we’re disappointed that we can’t open up for this year, we’ve come up with a few ideas not to let a year go by without some form of an event. Let’s start with a Deep Creek Lake and Garrett County art sale.
Deep Creek Lake and Garrett County Art Sale
Every year during the tour, we like to offer some “show specials” in the way of either discounted prints, original art, or cards. It has varied from year to year, but it’s our way of thanking people for coming out. This year we have put together a virtual gallery of select original art featuring images from around the Deep Creek Lake and Garrett County area. All artwork featured in this gallery will be offered at 20% off the listed price. Also, we are offering free shipping within the continental United States.
How to Purchase a Sale Item
If you are interested in purchasing a piece from the Deep Creek Lake and Garrett County gallery, here is how it works.
- Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, letting us know which pieces you are interested in purchasing. Please put “Virtual Studio Tour Sale” in your email subject heading and include your shipping address in the email.
- We will send you a secure electronic invoice that you can conveniently pay with a credit card. The invoice will reflect the 20% discount from the list price.
- Once we receive payment, we ship your art via US Postal Priority Mail.
- Only art within the Deep Creek Lake and Garrett County virtual gallery is eligible for the discount.
- Artwork is sold on a first come, first serve basis.
- Work on paper is sold unframed.
- If you have an address outside the continental United States, we will provide you with a shipping quote before sending your invoice.
- If you reside in Pennsylvania or Maryland, your purchase will be subject to sales tax.
If you have questions, please drop us an email at email@example.com.
More County Clare
For the last virtual tour of Ireland post, we covered the Burren and some of County Clare. Here are some more images and thoughts on the area before we move on. Another favorite stop for travelers is Cassidy’s Pub and Restaurant in Carron.
Petunia and Tim also stopped at the Visitor Experience at the top of the Cliffs before leaving County Clare. When you visit, do not miss the movie that runs on a loop in the Visitor Center.
Leaving County Clare
From there they were shuttled by Peter Mooney via the scenic route on to the Dingle Peninsula. They made one last stop in Lahinch, before taking the ferry to Tarbert in County Kerry.
The Irish Open had just finished up.
Surf’s up! It was a balmy 68 degrees, and people were enjoying the weather.
Drive right on to the ferry to Tarbert.
This is the way to arrive in County Kerry!
Next Up! On to the Dingle Peninsula
We hope you are enjoying the virtual tour of Ireland.
Our hearts go out to all of the people that helped to make our various trips to Ireland special. We know that the current situation is making life difficult for people at home and abroad. We are looking forward to the day we can get back to Ireland and other beloved spaces!
We’re going to take a quick detour from the virtual tour of Ireland for some new art. My current situation thankfully allows me to continue to golf as long as I use my own cart and don’t need to use the clubhouse, so here is Bye Birdie.
If you are interested in purchasing original art, cards or prints for the holidays, here is everything you need to know.
My original art, prints and hand-signed cards can be purchased at the Garrett County Arts Council.
Original art can be purchased directly from me. Please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re thinking about a purchase for the holidays. Please contact me with any questions about any work. Or, if you saw something at my studio but can’t find it online, get in touch and I can see if the painting is still available. I will be shipping original art out of my studio the week of December 1st, so plan now if you’d like to have something in time for gift giving.
Much of my work is now posted at my Fine Art America site, and all of it is available for purchase in prints and cards.
The high quality prints come in up to 15 different sizes and you can customize them with hundreds of mat and framing options. The site allows you to sort through a variety of mats and frames, previewing your image with your selected choices. The prints also arrive framed with the supplies that you will need to mount them onto your wall.
While all of the images are available to print as cards, I set up a Christmas Card gallery, featuring cards like “Santa”, for easier holiday card browsing. The card size is 5″x7″ and they include a white envelope. You can imprint a custom message inside the card, which I think is a nice feature. When you click on the greeting card, make sure you choose the drop down box to indicate your quantity of cards, as the price drastically reduces the more cards that you buy.
You can find information regarding Fine Art America shipping here. As with any holiday gift, I would recommend you get started with your plans sooner rather than later.
Thank you in advance if you’re considering a purchase. It is always an honor and I appreciate your business.
